The news of Toys R’ Us stores closing across the United States has been heartbreaking for many. The iconic toy store has been a huge part of everyone’s childhood and it’s definitely sad to see it go.

Well it looks like one mystery shopper is sending a local Toys R’ Us a lot of love before it officially closes its doors. According to reports we’ve gathered, an anonymous buyer spent a massive $1,000,000 on toys at a Raleigh, North Carolina branch.

Because of this, the said branch didn’t have to open on the final day of business since all the remaining toys have already been purchase by one person. The purpose, as it appears, is to donate the toys to local children, reported CBS 17.

The staff had to spend the rest of the day boxing the toys up and putting them on a truck for the buyer.
